DEA To Allow Additional Marijuana Growers

THE DRUG ENFORCEMENT ADMINISTRATION IS MOVING TO EXPAND THE NUMBER OF RESEARCHERS AUTHORIZED TO GROW MARIJUANA

(CNN) – The government is finally ready to get into the pot business.

The Drug Enforcement Administration says it is expanding scientific and medical research into marijuana.

That means the DEA will allow more researchers to grow a wider variety of the drug.

The DEA first announced it would license pot growers two years ago, but under then, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Justice Department stopped the process.

Attorney General Bill Barr says he’s pleased the DEA is seeking to expand growing marijuana legally to support research.
